Kevin McCarthy vows to kick 3 Dems off their committees

Number_58

Mayor
Well, you see, sane people have a problem with House members who tweet fantasies about killing other House members. So they discipline them.

I can’t expect you to understand.
I completely understand...I also understand that turn about is fair play.

McCarthy didn't hide what he was going to do...he told the entire country. Don't know why you're surprised.

I think a politician once said "Elections have consequences." Seems the only party that doesn't understand that is Democrats...they believe they still get to make the rules when they are in the minority...

Wait until the Republicans treat the Democrats in these committees like the Democrats treated Republicans. I bet Jim Jordan is licking his chops...

Really? You see the two incidents as identical?
1. in one case two republicans were refused because they were potential witnesses as well as being openly hostile to any investigation at all. McCarthy then removed the other three members in a temper tantrum.
2. What is the logic McCarthy has for dismissing the dems? Revenge for voting in favor of impeachment?
He don't need a logic if he's Speaker
He can use Pelosi's playbook

It's quite amusing to watch the reaction of PJ lib when the IN THE MINORITY Democrats have to play by the rules they established when in the majority.

Like I said in another post...the Democrats never learn...don't understand they will end up in the minority again and have to sleep in the bed they made...

opps, bet they never thought it would be NY and Cali that sent them packing

So how about if dems refuse to testify or take the 5th for every question? What if every committee that he kicks a dem off of then finds itself with no dems because the dems pull everyone else off?

Surprised? I’m in no way surprised. I knew the GOP House members would act like monkeys at the zoo, banging their cups against the bars and flinging their poo everywhere. And yes, the diehard GOP rabble will love to watch their antics. But sane voters, including those in the middle, will be revolted by the nauseating spectacle and hold it against the GOP at election time.

Again, I am not arguing FOR a given action, I am noting the blistering lefty double standard. Not ONE of you basement-dwellers expressed a syllable of opposition or outrage when YOUR guys did this stuff. Now…OP’s are aghast. As usual, when non-Democrats do something, “Why, this is beyond the pale!”.

It’s the same crap with everything from the filibuster to simple majorities to committee assignments. It’s always “different”.
We keep trying to tell you - “our” guys didn’t “do this stuff.” They didn’t tweet fantasies about killing other House members. They didn’t become witnesses to insurrections and then expect to “investigate themselves.” If they did, we would support that lameass McCarthy kicking them off committees. You are so brainwashed you seek to equate actions - revenge ejections from committees - that are in no way the same. Your mind is just too destroyed to perceive this.

If they take the 5th, same thing will happen as did in Schiff and Nadler's meetings, Republicans will accuse the witnesses of hiding something, exactly like the Democrats did when they ran the committee's.

If the Democrats throw a temper tantrum and don't participate, then the Republicans can just change the rules to suit what they need...you know, like the Democrats did.

No need to change the rules. The rules already authorize subpoenas. Trump and his cronies just ignored the subpoenas. They’re lawless.

You mean like happened to the Democrats for all their wasted time on impeachment they knew wouldn't lead to conviction and was nothing more than grandstanding?

You have to be the worst I've ever seen regarding bitching about the Republicans getting ready to do the exact thing you cheered the Democrats for when they had the majority...it's really strange and to the point of psychotic... ;-)

You should get the context of the conversation before answering. Your response doesn't make sense regarding what I was responding to.

If Biden commits the crimes Trump committed I will heartily endorse his impeachment. But he won’t. If he did, the Dems in the Senate would remove him from office. The Republicans in the Senate clapped like trained seals when Trump committed his crimes.

Quite a difference in approach - the rule of law vs. lawlessness.

If, if, if...If my aunt had testicles, he be my uncle.

Name one crime that Congress convicted Trump of...you must be delusional... ;-)
